From Ashes To New Give Us A Metal Version Of ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ – Meltdown
We didn’t know we needed it, but we did. From Ashes To New have taken it upon themselves to rock out the overplayed, vomit inducing Mariah Carey song. Finally, I can start my Christmas festivities!
I talked with singer Matt Brandberry recently, about this song and so much more. He told me how the song came about. “We probably did it (recording the song) a bit unconventional. I booked the studio to do some solo stuff, the studio time was set for mid-November. So it was booked for about a week before going on the currant tour that we’re on.” As he put it, he wasn’t able to do the solo stuff, so he decided to just use the studio time to do a Christmas song. “Lance, the guitarist, and I just started throwing around Christmas songs, of course there was a 100 in the hat.” He said they decided to go for the “low hanging fruit” and see what happens.
The result, is this…….the song recorded, video cut all within three days.
